[/quote]Intermec 2100 accesspoint software

the instructions are in the self extractin file..

It is confusing as they give 3 options.

once it is to the 1.50 version ten you can up grade the accesspoint through the browser.
if you are going to upgrade more then 1 accesspoint then then what you need to do is to up grade one AP to 1.50 then make that AP the route accesspoint. then put it on the network the go to the upgrade list on the IE browser menu you will see all the other accesspoints in a list then you will be able to click on each accesspoint and it will upgrade all the accesspoints over a periode of 5 min per accesspoint.

once they are all at 1.50 then the upgrade of the accesspoint is different.

you can download the ap utility and that will allow you to upgraded your root ap from that... be aware that you need to know the mac address or ip address of the accesspoint for this.

but back to up gradeing to the 1.50.. this is going to be hard unless you can you can understand the instructions.

things you need for the upgrade.
serial com cable for PC Com1 to AP
hyperterminal

setup hyperterminal to be on 9600, 8, none, 1, none

then when you connect with this you should see the ap name or serial number.

type in your name and password. ( if you have never changed it before it is intermec, intermec,)

this will bring you into the menu.

ok i have only brought you hear to make sure you know how to get into this part. and to confirm that hyper terminal is working correctly.

now follow the instruction in the 1.50 file.

as i said its going to be hard........

DO NOT DO THIS ON YOUR ONLY AP THAT YOUR WORK RELIES ON 100%

if you screw it up then you will have 2 boot secotrs and it wont boot in the way you want it.....then you will need to delete both


Upgrading a single UAP with a serial cable.

1. Establish a serial connection with the UAP. Your computer terminal program
(e.g. Hyperterminal on Windows) should have settings
Databits=8, Parity=None, Stop bits=1, Flow control=None.

You will use Ymodem to copy the files. The UAP defaults to 9600 bps. It
supports up to 115200 bps.

2. Reboot the UAP and enter the UAP monitor by pressing key when asked.
You will see the prompt "uap>" when you are in the monitor.

UAP Monitor V4.03 July 17,2000
<Press any key within 5 seconds to enter the UAP monitor>
uap>

3. Use SR command to speed up the serial baud rate for downloading.
(Type SR to see options).

uap>SR 115200

4. If you change baud rate on UAP, you need to change rate on computer to match.

5. Type SRVC to enter the Service menu. The Service password is EV98203S. The
service menu prompt is "service>"

uap>SRVC
Enter password : ********
service>

6. File erase (FE) startup and data segments 1 and 3 to make space for new code.
The letter 'P' (for passed) is printed to indicate the segment was erased.

service>FE 1
P
service>FE 3
P
service>


7. Put executable files into segment #1. In UAP Monitors prior to version
4.03, segment 1 had to be loaded in the order specified below. With 4.03
and later versions, the files may be loaded into segment 1 in any order.

First run the FX 1 command to tell the UAP to accept a Ymodem transfer
into segment 1. Then, transfer files using your terminal program.


service>FX 1
CCCCCCCCCC -- when you see C's, use your terminal software to copy the
DATA\BOOTCHK.DNL file to the UAP

service>FX 1
CCCCCCCCCC -- when you see C's, use your terminal software to copy the
STARTUP\UAP.DNL file to the UAP


service>FX 1
CCCCCCCCCC -- when you see C's, use your terminal software to copy the
STARTUP\UAPBOOT.DNL file to the UAP


Type FD to get the file directory. You should find a section of the display
that shows that you copied the three files (see example below). For UAP
Monitor versions prior to 4.03, make sure that the files appear in the
order specified. If not, repeat steps 7 and 8.

service>FD

File Directory:
name seg type length date time ver
------------- --- ---- ------ ---------- -------- ------
BOOTCHK.PRG 1 E 023024 11-06-2000 16:47:22 v04.03
UAP.PRG 1 E 632353 11-06-2000 16:46:44 v04.34
UAPBOOT.PRG 1 E 049720 11-06-2000 16:47:16 v04.03


8. Now put the files from the DATA directory into data segment #3.

service>FX 3
CCCCCCCCCC -- when you see C's, use your terminal software to copy all the
DATA\*.DNL file to the UAP. You can use *.DNL for this segment
because order is not important.


9. Set the active segments (FB) so the UAP runs with segments 1 and 3.

service>FB 1 3
P
service>

10. You can optionally exit (X) the service menu and restore your original baud rate
with the SR command.


11. Type B to Reboot the unit. The automated process will cause two boots
to happen. Watch for messages like the following to confirm the upgrade
was successful (i.e. version numbers should match this release).


service>B

UAP Monitor V4.03 July 17,2000
<Press any key within 5 seconds to enter the UAP monitor>

Executing file BOOTCHK.PRG from segment 1.

BOOTCHK System Upgrade Version V4.03

Monitor is being upgraded to match System Upgrade Version - rebooting...

UAP Monitor V4.07 February 23, 2001
<Press any key within 5 seconds to enter the UAP monitor>

Executing file UAP.PRG from segment 1.

UAP V4.68 March 23, 2001
<Press any key within 5 seconds to configure the UAP before starting system>

Starting system


12. Reconfigure the UAP for your installation if needed. If you are changing radios
around, you must restore factory defaults and then reconfigure the unit.
